Bay Area Rapid Transit trains are experiencing residual delays of up to 30 minutes this afternoon after a train was cleared from the Transbay Tube after it apparently struck something on a track, according to BART spokesman Jim Allison.
An operator of a Pittsburg/Bay Point train reported at about 1:05 p.m. that the train stopped after striking something, according to Allison.
Passengers on the disabled train were brought back to the Embarcadero station on another train. At the Embarcadero station, they boarded another train back toward the East Bay, according to Allison.
Although some BART trains continued to experience residual delays as of 2:35 p.m., the incident was cleared and trains began running again in both directions of the Transbay Tube as of 2:10 p.m.
Allison said there are conflicting reports about what the train struck, but there is no damage to the train or track.
